Our fortnightly garden waste service offers an affordable way for New Forest residents to recycle their garden waste.
How it works
The service is a convenient way for you to recycle your garden waste, without having to take it to the tip.
On joining for the first time, you will receive a reusable bag to store and present your garden waste in for collection. You will also receive a welcome letter and collection calendar.
Your bag(s) will be collected once a fortnight, with the exception of a break between mid-December and mid-January.
You can use your garden waste bag to dispose of up to 20kg of garden waste.

What happens to your garden waste?
Your garden waste will be taken to a site in Hampshire, where it will be composted by a process known as open windrow composting. The finished product, Pro-Grow, is a high quality soil conditioner that is available to buy at every household waste recycling centre.
